Quotes

"Guitar skills a little rusty, but couldn't turn down Vice Premier Liu Yandong's invitation to join in at Great Hall!" — @JohnKerry/Twitter
...He wrote that the festivities should include "pomp and parade" but most notably, "illuminations from one End of this Continent from this time forward forever more."
"When it comes to these issues, there's a huge opportunity in Asia for HuffPost's mix of original reporting and opening up our blogging platform to voices that would otherwise go unheard. We've seen over and over again that by opening up the conversation in these ways we can actually make a difference in people's lives.”"
...“The Ballad of a Small Player” appeared in 2014 and was immediately hailed by the London Sunday Times as the work of "someone remarkable and unexpected - lingering between the shadowy, post-colonial penumbra of Graham Greene and the brave new horizons of a globalised world - (Osborne) has emerged fully armed with a formidable, masterly grip on the British novel...Combining his sensitivity to old, vanished Britain with his brilliant, nomadic eye for the glittering tarnish of the modern world, Osborne has arrived late, but as a thrilling, exceptional talent in British fiction's landscape."
